Lt. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) of Star Trek fame will host the FameLab Astrobiology finals competition on Monday, April 16, from 7-9 p.m. EDT at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta. In the competition young scientists will compete to see who can use advanced scientific knowledge to prove themselves the most effective communicator.
A panel of scientific experts will judge the contest where participants can use only props they carry on stage to articulate the concept they have in mind. Contestants have been tirelessly making their way through preliminary trials since January. The winner will go on to compete in the International competition.
NASA television will broadcast the event. Those interested in the competition should follow this link. NASA television is available by clicking here.
